Apple gets closer to Magic Trackpad with filing
Apple's Magic Trackpad gained further credibility on Monday with an FCC filing for its approval. The document shows only the label location but does show a small, squared design that uses only Bluetooth for wireless. It also carries the same A1339 model name, consistent with Apple's naming schemes, and refers to the device as a trackpad.
There aren't any additional clues from the FCC, but Apple historically chooses to end its disclosure periods only just before launch, such as with the iPhone 4. The posting could hint at the Magic Trackpad shipping as soon as tomorrow, possibly including new desktop Macs. It's not evident if the trackpad would supplement or replace the Magic Mouse.
